intimate moments. honest imagery. orange county and destination.

Orange County has a plethora of wedding venues to choose from, but the Harper, located on the west side of Costa Mesa, is by far one of my favorites. From the grey toned outdoor ceremony space to the secret passage between the getting ready suites, there isn’t a piece of this venue that wasn’t thought of. Vines and beautiful greenery are a staple feature that decorate the outdoor areas. The neutral tones found throughout the chosen aesthetics make it blank canvas for you to bring to life. This venue features an outdoor space, an indoor space, two getting ready suites large enough to host a larger wedding party, a foyer as guests enter and a courtyard outside the bridal suite perfect for a private first look. The booking process couldn’t be easier.

First, you can take a virtual tour or schedule one in person through their easy to use online system. I must say, that the virtual tour is quite impressive and does a fantastic job at showing the flow of the space and highlighting how much natural light you get (which is A TON).

Last, you can actually look at their calendar online and reserve your date with a 50% deposit. No hassle, no questions asked, simply find your date and BOOK! This is great if you know that you want this venue but don’t have time to tour or do a sit down consultation before you book.

In as simple as two steps you’ve booked your wedding venue. This is just another reason I love this venue so much. With the ability to accommodate up to 300 guests, this venue is a no brainer for wedding big or small that love the urban meets European countryside aesthetic. It’s romantic, it’s modern, it’s waiting for you to book.
